2023 Australian Kookaburra 1oz .9999 Silver Bullion Coin
A common guest of residential Australian gardens, the kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species.
Devoted to other family members, kookaburras gather at dusk and dawn to declare territorial boundaries with shrill, cackling laughs. Having first heard the call of the Australian Kookaburra in 1990, investors have been faithful to the iconic silver series for more than three decades.
Struck by The Perth Mint 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and has a mintage of 500,000.
Each coin’s reverse portrays two genial birds perched on branches surrounding waratah, a native floral treasure. All coin designs incorporate the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2023 year-date, the weight and purity.
Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin’s design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
The obverse of each coin bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
Each bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
